Due to COVID-19, pre-approval is required for all UB travel.



As UB continues to respond to the impact of COVID-19, we recognize that, in limited circumstances, business travel may be required.

The university strongly recommends that all UB faculty, staff, students and non-employees (guests) avoid traveling to regions impacted by COVID-19. Travel pre-approval is required for essential business that involves overnight travel taking place during the university’s response to COVID-19. Decanal and Vice Provostal unit forms should be routed to the Provost for approval. Vice Presidential unit forms are to be approved by the President. Pre-approval must be obtained prior to travel arrangements being made, and is required for all funding sources (State, Research Foundation and UB Foundation).
